Christmas light switch on marks fresh start for Graiguecullen

Michael Walker, Chairperson of the newly revitalised Action Graiguecullen group, formerly the Graiguecullen Community Development Group will turn on the Christmas Tree lights at the Croppy Grave on Friday 2nd December at 6pm.

Michael says that Action Graiguecullen will endeavour to enhance the Graigue area and be a representative body to help influence the development of the community located on the River Barrow on the Laois Carlow border.

Previous projects undertaken by the Development Group which included Graiguecullen Text Alert, Home Security events, providing the information booklet ‘What’s In Graiguecullen For Me’ listing businesses and services in the area, arranging Christmas lighting and representing the town on the Older Peoples Forum and the Public Participation Network will now be undertaken by Action Graiguecullen.

We are looking forward to taking on new projects and will officially launch Action Graiguecullen when we turn on the Christmas lights said Michael.

There will be singing from local Choirs, dancing by the Dargan School of Dance, refreshment and treats for the children including a visit from Santa.
